The best Greek Islands for budget travelers
If you're looking to travel around the Greek Islands on a budget, one of the best ways to save money is by visiting some of the lesser-known islands. True, everyone visiting the Greek Islands wants to go to Santorini or Mykonos. And while they are well worth visiting, you can also find beautiful beaches, sparkling blue waters, white-washed houses and delicious Greek food on other Greek Islands. Nevertheless, each island is still unique, with its own food, architecture, culture and history.
The most affordable Greek Islands to visit include Crete
, Andros, Tinos, Corfu
. These cheap Greek Islands don't get nearly as many visitors as others, making everything from transportation to food and accommodations more affordable. And often, they're not even very far from the more popular islands. Andros is part of the Cyclades Islands, which includes Santorini, yet is often overlooked by the majority of tourists.
If you really want to check out the most popular islands like Santorini, you can still do so affordably by visiting outside of peak season, choosing cheaper accommodations and avoiding tourist traps.
